Osheaga Music Festival 2012 [CONCERTS]
Osheaga is a unique and eclectic music and arts festival staged in the breath-taking environs of Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sainte-Hélène, an island of tranquility set in the middle of the bustle of one of North America’s most exciting cities. The festival was inaugurated in 2006 with the intention of offering a world-class European-style festival to Canadians and to showcase Montreal’s acclaimed local talent alongside some of the industry’s biggest names. The artist line-up was designed to present a mix of today’s most avant-garde emerging artists juxtaposed against those internationally known artists who appeal to the most discerning music lover.
This year the festival includes acts like Feist, Snoop Dogg, A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd, The Black Keys, Aloe Blacc, Santigold, City & Colour, and another dozen bands worth mentioning, but If you’re not sold already, what’s the point?
The festival founders also sought to provide fans with an unparalleled experience by offering them the best music, the best food and concessions, and an eco-conscious approach.
